"Chinese stock markets are soaring on a combination of interest-rate cuts and the launch of a new trading link between Hong Kong and Shanghai. The new network opened China’s stock market to more foreign investment. Over the past year, the Shanghai Stock Exchange Composite Index has surged 149%, while the Shenzhen Stock Exchange Composite Index rocketed 190% during the same time period.
Hong Kong alone has seen $11.8 billion in IPOs in 2015, beating the New York Stock Exchange’s $9.1 billion, reported The Wall Street Journal."
